May 8, 2020

The Government of Manitoba has announced an increase in their matched funds program for the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative for the 2020-2021 academic year. The initiative will see the province match all funds raised by universities and colleges for the year, amounting to approximately $30M in support for students via scholarships in bursaries. MB also announced that they are committing $5M to the program on top of the $10M already announced, and the separate Manitoba Bursary program—which provides up-front financial support to students in need—has been increased by $1.8 million for 2020-21.
